Pheu Thai: Abhisit should resign as MP

- +

Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva should resign as an MP now that the Defence Ministry had issued an order to strip him of his military rank, says a Pheu Thai Party spokesman. 

The case in which Mr Abhisit was accused of draft-dodging was closely followed by the general public, who wanted to see whether the former premier had really used falsified military documents as alleged, said Prompong Nopparit.

Because the defence panel had ruled that Mr Abhisit had dodged military conscription and the Defence Ministry had stripped him of his rank and pay, he should resign as an MP to show political responsibility, the spokesman said.
